I am a Research Scientist at Google Switzerland, and am a Visiting Senior Fellow and Guest Lecturer at LSE. Previously, I was an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at London School of Economics. I work on problems at the intersection of Algorithms, Game Theory, and Mechanism Design.
I received my PhD in Computer Science from EPFL Lausanne. My PhD advisor was Monika Henzinger. During my PhD I did summer internships with David C. Parkes at Harvard University and Radu Jurca at Google Zürich. After my PhD I was a Postdoctoral Researcher with Tim Roughgarden at Stanford University and Éva Tardos at Cornell University, an LSE Fellow in Mathematics at London School of Economics, and a Senior Researcher at ETH Zürich.
I have acted as reviewer for Computer Science, Economics, and OR journals such as SICOMP, Econometrica, Operations Research, Mathematics of Operations Research, and Games and Economic Behavior. I have been on the program committee of Computer Science conferences such as the ACM Conference on Economics and Computation. I was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship, and a SNF Postdoctoral Fellowship. I am alumnus of both the German and the Swiss Academic Foundation. I have won a best full paper award at EC’19, a best paper award at EC’12, and a best poster award at WWW‘10.
